Succulents in a Junk Garden

Growing Succulents in a Junk Garden
This photo of a small garden area next to my deck was taken June 9th, 2017, about a week after planting.  Several varieties of annual and perennial sedums, and sweet alyssum make up the majority of the planting.  I also purchased a $13 plastic succulent basket with a variety of different plants.

Fast forward to July 24th, 2017.

The succulent basket was planted in this tire rim I purchased at a rummage sale a couple years ago.

I used the rim as a planter pedestal in previous years.

Enamelware Tissue Holder/Herb Planter
My thrift shop enamelware tissue holder/herb planter  and stool also joined this garden area.

Sweet alyssum make a great accompaniment to low growing sedums.

I love all the various shapes, sizes and textures of this little succulent garden.

The stool and tire rim get some of the low growing plants up off the ground for much needed vertical interest.
Now if I can just keep the squirrels out of the succulents.  They love chewing them up! I have tried Liquid Fence for deer and rabbits, and I might try some cayenne pepper too!

  1. Cayenne pepper works for me on those darn chipmunks, or maybe it's squirrels, I don't know. I don't have much trouble with deer around here even though our house backs up to woods. Carlene, you always have the cutest ideas! I would love to take a personal tour of your garden so I could see things up close.
